Default First drive at night - no dash lights - blinking Air Bag

Went for the first longer trip today, 200 miles round trip. The car is new (to me) performed fine on the road trip.

At dusk, I turned on the lights - the headlights work but I do not know how to get a high beam and I have no dash lights. Turning the rotary **** from one side to other that says Dim, does nothing. I assume this is the control **** for the intensity of the dash lights and instrument panel? The headlight lever/switch should be illuminated as well???

Also have a blinking Air Bag light in the instrument panel?? Is all of this "normal" stuff, related or multiple problems I have yet to fix?

Thumbs up High beams figured out - pull on the lever

Found another thread that said to "pull" on the headlight lever....it works; odd
system but it works and I have high beams.

Will pull the instrument cluster to change probable burned out bulbs, check
the Air Bag connections and the gas gauge for the over Full condition.

Progress...
